The NanoLabNL Information System (NIS) is an application to manage all information and processes necessary for the daily operation of a cleanroom environment. The development of NIS has been commissioned by the NanoLabNL foundation. Their goal is to improve the cooperation between its partners and to enable sharing of the available equipment and knowledge with ease. NIS plays an important role in facilitating this.
Users of NIS can authenticate themselves using their own institute credentials, after which they can access institute and equipment information, manage equipment reservations and maintenance, register their process flows and perform many other actions related to cleanroom activities.
The system integrates lessons learned with the MIS information system, used at the MESA+ NanoLab of the University of Twente, and the Living DataBase by Phoenix, but the implementation is completely new and done in close cooperation with all NanoLabNL partners.
NIS is already being used in production by the Zernike lab in Groningen and AMOLF in Amsterdam. The other NanoLabNL partners (TNO, Kavli and Else Kooi in Delft, TU/e lab in Eindhoven and MESA+ NanoLab in Enschede) will be migrating as soon as possible.
